Congratulations, David

Hi David, love the trees and all they represent standing alone, maybe two or a whole forest. I am in love with your Celtic window and I see you will be in Cambridge, I so hope to make one of your showings and I'm wondering if "Celtic Window"will be at either on of the exhibits??
-- Maryedna, 8/1/18

You look like a happy guy, like it might be contageous!
-- Wilson Hunt, 5/29/18

Wow. Just wow. I really enjoyed reviewing your work. Especially enjoyed 'the wandress' ;)
-- Chris M., 3/6/18

David, thank you for your diversity. You are an immensely creative photographer, and you apply your vision to a wide range of subjects and styles. Your work is always interesting. I very much appreciate that.

David, thank you for making our maternity shoot a wonderful experience. The pictures are truly beautiful and capture the love we have for each other as well as the love we have for our little bundle that will be arriving soon. You are incredibly talented and fun to work with. Thank you again for capturing this special time in our lives!
-- Kellyn And Michael Goncalves , 8/5/14

Very cool stuff. Hope all is well & dreams are getting pursued.
-- Melanie Madden, 2/18/14

I am thinking, actually hoping, that if Ireland has an exhibit of your work, then Cambridge just might have such good fortune. Just wonderful amazing talent..thank you!
-- Maryedna, 6/18/13

Love your galleries.

Great work... inspirational! Thanks
-- Debbie Allen, 6/4/12

David, Asylum, Reflections and Whimsy series are those very rare kind of art works which everytime we look at, make our mind rewrite a new is, at the same time, realism and surrealism both working the deep of our souls. Congratulations David!
-- Fernando Rôlla, 8/26/11

You're work is absolutely amazing David! It caught my eye 6 years ago & is an inspiration to me even now. You successfully capture the soul/spirit of every subject that you interact with perfectly. You convey to the viewer the depth of your passion and make them stop and think. I look forward to seeing more!
-- Corinna M. Hypes, 6/17/11

Love your work. I especially felt the Asylum series. Can't be explained... it just is. Thank you.
-- Cybil, 6/13/11

Paddle boarding at Claflin Landing in Chatham is such a serene experience and I'm so glad you were able to capture it. I don't mind sharing the water with hungry seals but I hope a shark never mistakes me for food. Amazing photos, can't wait to see more. See ya out on the water!
-- Molly, 6/10/11

Your work taps into a certain part of my mind. It makes me think. There are so many stories that I create looking at just one photo. Thank you!
-- Melanie Moore, 6/1/11

very interesting. Reminds me of Christmas in Purgatory...

-- Tina Peterson, 1/5/11

Thank you so much! You are an amazing photographer! I greatly enjoyed working with you! I would love to do it again sometime.
-- Teiyla Shaw, 12/22/10

I just linked you to my FB page... Sweet mother... I am in awe!!! I grew up with a step-father who was a photographer - his haunting chant "fill the negative" still echoes everytime I shoot! I was looking at the Asylum and all I do is stare with my mouth wide open... Haunting, Captivating, Just Speechless.... Truly Impressed and Deeply Moved!!! Simply Stunning!!!
-- Roberto Villanueva, 11/9/10

BEAU-TI-FUL! I love your photographies!
-- Mickaëla, 9/5/10

DLB, I saw your creative side as we were growing up, but never imagined the real gift you have and am pleased to see you have experienced so much success with your talent. Your combination of words and photos inspires and challenges our minds. Thanks for sharing your visions with all of us…
-- Jill Curry Schmidt, 6/10/10

David, I am a seasoned visual person, and I think your work is outstanding. You work with words as well, which I love. I am a word person, who loves not just reading, but the actual writing of the words, fonts, typefaces, paper(critical)color and finish. It's rainy, and I feel like a kid coloring while I go through your site. It's been a real privilege!
-- Gayle Dallas Blackston, 5/19/10

As a serious ols school Leica-M photographer, Mine are now mere snapshots-yet, good ones, but....Yours' David-oh my!! David- the melding of your beautiful artful soulful eye with the powerful haunting spoken word , the light and shadow of our humanity. I would carry your flashbulbs to see you in action, a 'roadie' as in the Jackson Brown song Stay. Dr. Bartro
-- Bob Bartro, 4/12/10

Amazing, soulful, breath-taking, awe inspiring, beautiful, your work and the words you choose to use with them.
-- Toni (Botkins) Monsen, 4/9/10

David, your photos are simple, yet very complex. A pleasure to view over and over agian. Thanks for taking the time, you really captured our "walk with the dogs" I do love the contrast.
-- Jeanne Bernard, 4/1/10

Great site David, the asylum photos are fantastic. Can't help but think that place would have been a great place for a music video,for some metal band. A very haunting and eerie set of photos.
-- Steve P, 3/29/10

David, Aunt Maggie's Truck captures me..but there are far too many favorites to list. I love the landscape gallery. They're all beautiful!!
-- Kathy L., 3/16/10

David, Your work is inspirational...soulful. Thank you for sharing it. I will look forward to visiting one of your gallery showings. Peace.
-- Carol Pepi, 3/2/10

My best friend Misty gave me The Perfect Birthday present...a piece of David's work of two little girls sitting on a bench overlooking a field...I love it!
-- Lisa Drew, 2/24/10

Faith MarcusThank you for your comment, and for taking the time to drop by. Your work is so impressive, soulful and magical. I wish you the very best!
-- Faith Marcus, 2/3/10

Susan Cohen ThompsonHi David, Thanks for your comments about my art. I especially enjoyed your photographs of Two Trees. Amazing creatures you've captured for all seasons. I am one of the founders of Natick Center for the Arts. Small world here at Zhibit. Best to you!
-- Susan Cohen Thompson, 1/27/10

Wow, David. Wonderful site! Who would have thought my classmate would see the world through such beautiful eyes.
-- Penny J. Umstattd-cope, 12/29/09

David, I've landed on your page at last and your work is so striking (and immensely rewarding to view)! I'm going to take my time to wade through them all and shall return often to indulge in your genius. By the way, I love your 'two trees' series....hope they'll be standing tall for many years to come....
-- Gracelle Gerber, 12/26/09

Dear Mr. Black, On behalf of the Board of Library Trustees I wish to thank you for sharing your photographs with our library patrons. Your work is striking and so many people commented on how much they enjoyed the exhibit. The multi-framed Father Daughter series aroused a great deal of interest and comment. I appreciate your work and wish you much success in the future. Sincerely Yours, Deborah Grimmett Director, Abington Public Library
-- Deborah , 12/24/09

You make magic, I think. I love that you create stories. You should be published.
-- Cheryl Dyment, 12/9/09

Beautifully done David, your work and your site. While viewing the "Asylum" series my daughter said "I can already smell the place!" Your work really speaks to the senses.
-- Terri Rosas, 12/6/09

I love your site David! Great job and best of luck. I know for a fact the "sisters" photo will fly off the shelves! Love you!
-- Kimberly Loughran-pavao, 11/18/09

Very impressive, David!
-- Sherri, 11/3/09

Many of your compositions are transcendental in nature, clearly a passionate pilgrim when the camera is in your grasp.
-- Collette, 10/21/09

Thank you David for your transcendent work. Your photography and writings are a perfect union. Congratulations on the New York award! Rachel and I look forward to working with you.
-- Raymond, 10/19/09

This can't be... David Black from little old Mexico Mo??? A Musician, a writer... photography... biker... What a rich life... this is a person with an artists soul. Those people don't come from where I come from... do they? If it wasn't for your picture (i'd recognize you anywhere) I would have been convinced that I had the wrong David Black. Each time I see one of your thought provoking images, or read a FB post, I think, how did I not see this side of David when we were at MHS? How could I not have known this person better? But of course, I wasn't then, the person I am now, so I supposed it is possible that you grew into this artist/musician/writer person in the past 30 or so years. Anyway... I just wanted you to know that I am so tickled to know that you not only survived your childhood in the midwest, but have gone on to flurish and build wonderful, full, rich life... Whether because of, or inspite of your many years in little old Mexico, MO.
-- Chris Dobyns, 10/17/09

Eneida MaisonaveAmazing photographs. Love your work!
-- Eneida Maisonave, 10/9/09

-- Joyce, 9/28/09

Simple, and serene yet so complex. Your pictures are soulful. Hope to see more of your work.
-- Debbie, 8/12/09

Excellent idea to add your comment to your picture.It makes the photo complete and original like the masterpiece.
